What a weekend! On Sunday was Nova’s dedication/blessing day at church. I have been so nervous and emotional leading up to that day. I am forever grateful she chose us. The day was truly amazing surrounded my family and friends. After the dedicated at church, we had an impromptu celebration at home filled with love and laughter. At the same, I can’t believe she 3 months already. I feel truly blessed.

On a fashion note, everybody needs a unique, fun skirt like this Phillip Lim utility skirt. It’s  one of my favorite skirts right now. Love the classic feel and accentuated playful details. This skirt is the new utilitarian…this season must-have utility trend. The skirt is a statement on its own and hence requires less to style it.  There are so many ways to style this utility style skirt. For a more relaxed look, style it with graphic tee, sneakers or mules. In this post, I chose to a more formal route by pairing it with button down shirt and a pop of color in this Balenciaga embellished sandals. I bought it a year ago during Shopbop sale. It is current available in “butterscotch” and phantom blue” here. You can also rent it in black via Rent the Runway.
